As a component of the U.S. Navy, NAVFAC offers an outstanding government employee benefits package. We offer competitive salaries, which also include annual cost-of-living adjustments. Some benefits vary from site-to-site, but NAVFAC is dedicated to supporting our workforce – and improving their quality of life – across the board.

We offer a retirement plan, a 401(k)-type savings plan (the government Thrift Savings Plan), and pay a portion of your group health and life insurance. Additional plans include long term care disability insurance, dental and vision insurance and flexible spending account options. You’ll enjoy 10 paid federal holidays per year, 13 sick days, and can earn up to five weeks of vacation annually. More detailed information can be found on OPM’s website.
